Crowned With the Colors of God’s Glory

Crown my life with your joy and gladness.
Bring me into your presence and promises.
Guide me into your plans and purposes.

The magnificence of spring is getting ready to burst upon the scene, and with its colors dissipate the dreary landscape of winter.  With one stroke, color will brighten the surroundings, and alter the depressive monotony of cold.

Trials and problems tend to drench us in dreariness.  The enemy prefers we succumb to the insidious clutches of gloom, bitterness and doubt – things that dampen the brilliant hues of joy, mercy and hope.

Yet, in one instant, from a single moment in God’s presence, the radiant colors of His glory burst into our very being.  With one stroke, God transforms a heart faded from doubt and sadness into one saturated with hope and gladness.

Into a life crowned with the colors of God’s glory.

“But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.”
Psalm 3:3
